    Hi guys long time no see

    Another big weekend ahead in the championship starting with Arbroath v Raith Rovers tonight on BBC Scotland. Should see Raith go 3 clear before United travel to Partick Thistle tomorrow.

    Title race is going to the wire imo and in recent weeks I’m beginning to brick it

    You have by far the best squad in the Championship.. so on paper, you should get promoted.

    I do enjoy a bit of Scottish Championship on a Friday night & what a cracker tonight so far .

    Raith cruising at half time & with some dodgy defending went 2 up early in the 2nd & then all change within 20 mins & bottom club Arbroath heavily wind assisted are now 3-2 up with 6 mins to go .

    Fair play to the 2 cameramen on the gantry , not so for the 20 Arbroath 11 year old Ultras giving it large when they've scored :D

    After both of the top 2 cocked up in midweek do any of them want promotion ?

    Brilliant result last night. I’m off to firhill today let’s see if United have the bottle to capitalise on this.

    11? They weren't that old. If the Raith young team encountered them after the game, they would have run home to their mum.

    I reckon 1 was easily 13 & was worried every time they stormed the fence it'd collapse what with their Friday night filling of square sausage & buckfast :D

    At least none of them had those silly half undone scarf thingies that are popular with some Scottish fan bases .

    No, play-off failure beckons again, although United have been pretty disappointing this season, lack of goal power in the team, but they'll get over the line.

    Been poor from just before Christmas but no way were we going to keep that good form up the full season. Having doubts but being honest we will probably stumble across the line like Dundee did last season.

    It's gonna take a big turnaround in 2nd half for Dundee Utd to get anything out of this match , but , it's the Championship & anything can happen .

    3-0 now. Raith getting a favour from their local rivals, would never have thought it. United really are awful, Jim McLean would be turning in his grave watching this shambles of a team.

    Ayr v Airdrie tonight , should be goals :hopefully

    Ayr have good recent record in head to heads but don't seem to have replaced Dipo Akinyemi who was banging them in for fun last season & Airdrie may still have a hangover after their Cup win at Falkirk last weekend , I'll go for a 3-2 home win .
